The organisers of this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix, the sixth round in the 2007 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, have announced today that all tickets are completely sold-out.

"All tickets for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 8-10 of the 2007 edition, are sold out," read a statement to the media. "Since 5:00 p.m., the ticket office is no longer taking orders.

"The organisers wish to thank all its loyal fans, for once again, contributing to the success of the event, which is celebrating the 40th anniversary of Formula 1 Grand Prix in Canada. To all race fans, we wish you all a wonderful grand prix."

In a separate release meanwhile the British Grand Prix has confirmed a number of improvements to its disabled facilities for this year's event next month.

"Disabled fans heading to Silverstone on July 6-8 can now make use of improved facilities in Woodcote B grandstand where, undercover and located with views of Pits Straight and the complex at Luffield, 31 additional wheelchair spaces have been made available to race fans," read a release from the Northamptonshire-based circuit.

"Each of these spaces, easily accessible for wheelchair users, also has the added benefit of two allocated seats for friends and family. Silverstone has selected the Woodcote B grandstand for these developments due to its close proximity to amenities, including the trade mall, catering outlets and car parking, along with the excellent view of the giant screens installed at the circuit for the British Grand Prix.

"These specifically designated areas at Woodcote can be booked for any race meeting at Silverstone throughout the season. Circuit bosses have also introduced a policy for each of its promoted events, offering free entry for one carer accompanying a wheelchair user.

"For larger events at Silverstone, including the British Grand Prix on 8 July, the circuit also provides an 'Event Mobility' service, making wheelchairs and scooters available to those who may struggle to access different sections of the circuit."
